15 Signs Your Crush Likes You Back

The biggest thing that makes having a crush so complicated is all of the confusing emotions that you’re constantly feeling. How are you supposed to know if he likes you back or not?! Sometimes, even if he says he likes you, it can still be hard to tell if he really does or if he’s just trying to play you.

Here at Gurl, we’re constantly getting questions from you guys asking how to know if your crush likes you back. Well, I don’t know your crushes personally, but I do know that there are some telltale signs any guy will put off if he’s into you. If your crush does a lot of this stuff, then guess what? He’s probably just as into you as you are to him!


He always texts you back. And if he doesn’t for a little while, then he says sorry and explains why he was MIA.

You randomly catch him staring at you happily and when you do, he gets embarrassed.

He seems really excited to take you out somewhere, whether you’re just going to the movies or going out for a nice dinner. 



He doesn’t talk about other girls in front of you, even if a gorgeous girl walks by or the hottest actress ever gets naked while you’re watching a movie.

He doesn’t try to hook up with you right away. He wants it to be special!

He asks you questions about your life. If he’s genuinely interested in getting to know you, he’ll want to talk about you more than just himself.

He actually calls you. In this age of texting and online messaging, if a dude actually picks up a phone to call you… take that as a good sign. 



He remembers those thing you tell him, or things he’s noticed about you.

He gets into a little PDA with you in public, like holding your hand, kissing your cheek or just being cute with you.

He’s always smiling and laughing every time he’s around you. This shows he’s happy!

He cleans his room before you come over. A lot of guys (not all guys) are messy and don’t really care about it. But if he goes out of his way to clean for you, he wants to make a good impression. 

giphy (6)


He does other things to impress you, like casually mention he does something really cool. Or maybe he shows off a little. It’s cute! 

giphy (7)


If he has to cancel plans, he apologizes, explains why and makes new plans with you. 

giphy (8)


He goes out of his way to make sure you’re happy. He does what you want to do and will cancel plans with other people sometimes to see you.

You just kind of know. Sometimes, you can’t help but notice the sparks.

  • hannah

    my crush and I hang out all the time when we are at school and his friends say that we are practically going out! one of his friends even asked me and said that we flirt all the time! I don’t know that he likes me or hes just being a really good friend to me. what should I do???

  • Lily Lou Lou

    So guys my crush always stares at me in class then when I look at him he smiles I often catch him looking at me FYI I do it too? We always talk and he always texts me and we flirt and stuff what does this mean does anyone know or can help me

  • Nia

    So me and my crush met awhile ago, he flirts with me all the time, he calls me cutie, and everybody says he likes me a lot, but there’s only two things. He kinda likes another girl as well,and he also told me he doesn’t want to be involved in a relationship right now because he’s always getting hurt when he is in a relationship ,how do I show him that I won’t do that to him without looking needy and desperate, which I’m not lol, I could just really get some advice from someone.
    Thank you, xox ❤️

    Alright so I have no idea about this I’ll just tell you what’s going on. I’m 15 turning 16 in a few months like 3 and I never even kissed a guy and for sure knew I only had a crush on two guys before and now I moved and school is almost over and so, this is when I relised it. He used to talk to me in classes at time we only talk in classes I think. I’m in 9th grade with him and my brother invited him to sleep over at another house of ours and my brother said he was into me. Then now he’s trying to scare me, I’m hard to scare, and yesterday he tried to get a highfive from me I ran to the locker rooms and didn’t come out till school was over, that was because I was reading and then today I let him have a high five and he was happy cause he was complaining that I won’t give him one so that’s why. The only reason I’m asking this is because why I asked my brother why he suspected he liked me, he said he would talk about me even when the conversation wasn’t about me. I think I kinda like him but I’m not sure all these facts lead to him liking me I mean I’ve never even been kissed let alone have a boyfriend. Oh and I’m really shy.

    So I am 15 and have a crush. He knows, everyone in school knows. I don’t know what to do. Recently, the kids in school voted for the two of us to be on homecoming together. We didn’t end up winning but when we walked out the students were woohooing and shouting his name. I was so nervous to link arms with him. He was nice about it but at the time he had a gf…with the same name as me…the Monday after homecoming…someone told me that he broke up with her…but I thought they were just teasing me..the next day I got his snapchat and phone #, he replied to my first few texts but whenever I text him now he doesn’t respond…i know he gets my texts because my friend texted him and he responded to him and the same time I texted him..yet he didn’t reply. What does this mean? He talks to me almost everyday at school, Sami is in there somewhere. He calls me Sami and everyone keeps teasing me about it cause I said he is the only one who can call me that. Like in gym when ever I do something he will say go Sami or something like that. I have friended/followed him on social media but he hasn’t accepted me. Everyone keeps saying we will never happen but idk because I feel something is between us. I feel I get up,in the morning for him or smile for him…he is my reason to live…other than my younger brother. I have looked at signs if your crush likes you or doesn’t like you but none of them fit my situation. Like he is my wallpaper on my iPad and someone saw it and said I am as talker but yes i am but no I’m not…I don’t just like him for his looks but for the pieces i put together. I don’t know if I and just desperate for love or what..but I’ve been down a path like this before and it doesn’t turn out well. Whenever I listen to music I think of him. I am a biggie on romance/love but idk why…it may have something to do with the fact that my parents are divorced I live with my mom but my dad is in my life and even though ik my dad loves me…I feel that I need a guy to talk to or be with.

    Sorry this is so long.

    Hi(: I have a crush on this boy over 8 years since he came to my school . I had enough of holding my feelings for him for so long and my bestfriends helped me out to tell him I was really scared and nervous because I never really had these feeling and I asked my bestfriend to tell him (yes I was with her to face to face with him as well). After me and my bestfriend tild him he was blushing and smiling but looked down then back at me still blushing. He didn’t tell me anything but he told my bestfriend that he knew I liked him but he won’t at least tell me if he likes me back so I won’t at least be lead on 🙁 please help

  • Anonymous

    My crush is always loud around his friends, but when we talk he’s quiet but not uncomfortablely quiet. I catch him staring all the time, when I catch him he smiles. He teases me sometimes, and he’ll “randomly” bump into me at the end of the day and say hi. (Still with that smile) We have most of our classes together, in my first period class he stares at me from across the room. In my other classes he talks to me a lot! Well he does sit in front of me for 2 whole periods! And there’s other things……I probably shouldn’t mention. They’re kind of inappropriate. But what do ou think, does he like me?

  • Daniela

    I recently met this guy this school year and at first I barely knew him but during the first month or so he tried to make small talk with me and as the shy girl I am I tried opening up more but I failed miserably because thats when I knew that I liked him… the school year went on and I began to notice these weird yet cute looks he began to give me and at first I thought mabey he saw me as the weird shy girl but as the days went on the looks became more confusing because whenever ill catch him staring he’ll just look away as if nothing was worth looking at..no one had to tell me but I started to figure out that he liked me because of some easy to tell signs.. anyways school is over now but I overheard he might come back next year.. if he does should I expect him to still like me or is it easier to just forget?, because I know ill never forget and im more than sure that ill still have feelings for him..

  • Sarah

    He probably does but if your not sure don’t be shy to ask him!

  • Sarah

    So I like this guy but I don’t know if likes me back. I’m 10 most of these things here are like not helpful. This is what he does to me in school (since that’s the only time I get to see him)
    Teases, Touches my arm/hand occasionally (idk if it’s by purpose or mistake) Smiles and laughs at my jokes and act all nice around me. So some “Important” the hints are left out like: we don’t text, he doesn’t compliment me
    I really don’t know if he likes me or just wants to stay friends. Help?

  • Stephanie

    I like this guy in my class and he hangs out with me and my friends a lot and I’ve liked him for two years. We always talk to each other and make jokes and laugh. He pats me on the head sometimes and lays his head on my shoulder. We always text each other and I feel comfortable when I’m with him. I think he likes me but I’m not too sure. I want to ask him about it but I’m too shy when it comes to things like that. What should I do?
